Plenty of players had their dreams come true Thursday night when they were selected in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Yet there are only 60 picks and, well, several more than 60 players declared for the draft. That discrepancy triggered the standard flurry of undrafted free agents signing contracts with teams, a run that started not long after the festivities in New York concluded.
While most of the UDFA's will have to go the summer league route to prove themselves, don't overlook those whose names weren't called Thursday, as they undoubtedly will have a chip on their shoulders. Last season alone, 31 undrafted players appeared in at least one regular season game, a slight decrease from the 2017-18 season total of 35.
While the contracts handed out were structured in a variety of ways, each deal provided a coveted opportunity. Here is a look at where some of the top undrafted rookies have signed.
